It has finally arrived! The divide and rule between the chopstick and fork merges with the emergence of a “Chork”.
The combination of a chopstick, fork and a trainer or cheater for the novice, this new dining utensil serves the cross section of diners with comfort and norms they are familiar with. One needn’t face that awkward moment, when eating becomes the most difficult moment of a meeting. The utensil has been designed in a manner that makes a fork on one end and sticks on the other.
Hence, for the person dissociated with the eating norms and tricks of a chopstick can switch to the fork and vice versa with this patented three-way eating utensil. Come to think of it, Chork opens a whole new opportunity for eateries to expand their cuisines belonging to more origins than one!
Interestingly, a user believes Chork could replace the pandas for moulding diplomatic relations between the Chinese and US. For eaters however, it makes a perfect grabber for sushi and salad.
This intriguing invention is already becoming popular among diners, as it minimises clutters on table like eating was never as neat and clean. Brown Innovation Group, a concept development and marketing company, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, is the maker of this food smart tool.
